I’ve designed an API that initiates a BPMN process and then expects a valid response body as an output.
The process is in charge of performing a few evaluations based on a customer’s information to determine if they’re allowed to continue with their desired purchase or not.
Some of these purchases contain “add-ons” of sorts, meaning that we offer them the ability to take Product A + Product B, but both products require their own evaluation.
As such, the process kicks off to get the relevant information required to do these evaluations, and then kicks off a multi-instance, parallel sub-process to do evaluations for each of these products.
Within this sub-process, REST service X is called, after which we need to wait for a few seconds and then call REST service Y. For this scenario, I’ve used an intermediate timer catch event to wait 5 seconds before calling the next service.
The problem I’m facing is that, once the sub-process reaches the timer and waits for the 5 seconds, the parent process completes and returns an empty REST response before the entire transaction completes.
Is there a way for me to have the parent process wait for its sub-processes (using these timer events) to complete before it ends? I’m getting very lost with regards to how I can solve this using Camunda, without having to do a
